4 stars While not as spacey as their debut 71(I haven't heard anything that is) this is still about this dynamic duo trying to create a mood, an atmosphere,a soundscape for the trip you are about to take. Lets start by turning out the lights and putting on those headphones shall we, because were going on a voyage into deep space.

"Plas" reminds me of the debut with the waves of sound and pulsating electronics that shift and change throughout. "Im Suden" features the same melody(yes I said melody) over and over. It sounds like a guitar actually as other sounds wash in and out. That melody is eventually copied by electronics?. Very cool song.

"Fur Die Katz" has these high pitched noises at first that eventually soften. "Live In Der Fabrik" features strange sounds that come and go as pulsating sounds throb relentlessly. It gets very spacey 11 minutes in. "Georgel" reminds me of their debut record because it's so spacey. Like being in a cosmic wind storm. Incredible soundscape. "Nabitte" sounds like the machinery in some sort of assembly line. Vocal sounds can be heard as well.

My two favourite tracks are "Im Suden" and "Georgel". Highly recommended music if your going to take a long trip. If I had to pick between their first two albums i'd take 71 but it's close.
